In the spirit of all that is good this holiday season, please join me in helping my friends at Share Our Strength and Tyson Foods raise some money to help end childhood hunger in America. As we all push ourselves away from holiday tables with over-full bellies, it's important to remember that many of our young will be going to bed hungry tonight.
Childhood hunger is a big problem with a simple solution. Here in America, the wealthiest nation on the planet, 16 million kids aren't getting the food they need. $1 raised through this Give-A-Thon connects a child to up to 10 meals. $10 = 100, $25 = 250……you get the picture. If we reach our goal of $25,000 today, we'll provide hungry children with access to 250,000 additional meals.
Even better, if you donate to the cause today as part of the national "Giving Tuesday" effort, the generous folks at Tyson Foods will match your donation—dollar for dollar—giving us the potential to raise $50,000 in a single day, providing hungry children with access to 500,000 additional meals.
For those of you who are social media savvy, once you've made your pledge please help spread the word of the Give-A-Thon on Twitter and Facebook using the hashtags #nokidhungry, and #givingtuesday.
Please click on THIS LINK right now to donate to the No Kid Hungry Give-A-Thon, and join me in the fight to end childhood hunger in America.
Thank you so much and Happy Holidays!
Cheers – Steve
